EI/JIG 1530 provides a Standard to assist all parties in the maintenance of aviation fuel quality, from its point of manufacture through to delivery to airports.

The Standard provides industry-accepted mandatory provisions and good practice recommendations for the design/functional requirements of facilities, and operational procedures that apply upstream of airports.

Requirements are specified for aviation fuel quality assurance and traceability; management of change; sampling and testing of fuel; fuel testing laboratories; fuel manufacture; handling and application of aviation fuel additives; aviation fuel receipt, batching, certification and release; bulk fuel storage; ocean tankers, coastal and inland waterway vessels; and transportation by pipeline, rail, road and by drum, IBC and ISO tank containers.

Requirements are also included for the manufacture and handling of synthetic fuel blends.

This Standard marks a major step forward for the aviation fuel supply industry, being the first time that such a comprehensive set of requirements have been published, and is recognised in ICAO Doc 9977 Manual on civil aviation jet fuel supply.

All companies handling aviation fuel in all aviation fuel supply chains are encouraged to conform with the requirements.

EI JIG Standard 1530 Self-assessment tool

The EI has developed a comprehensive checklist to accompany EI/JIG Standard 1530 Quality assurance requirements for the manufacture, storage and distribution of aviation fuels to airports.

Published in excel spreadsheet format, this self-assessment tool is primarily intended for use by the owners/operators of existing facilities who wish to assess whether the infrastructure, equipment and procedures in use conform to the requirements and/or recommendations of EI/JIG 1530. It may also have other uses, e.g. when assessing whether facilities used for other products are suitable for aviation fuel service.

Purchasers of EI JIG 1530 should contact the Publishing Team for a copy of the self assessment tool. Contact: pubs@energyinst.org.
